Statement of Significance

The site of Seymour Cottages has cultural heritage significance as the location of some of the earliest holiday houses in the area. Seymour’s cottages played a fundamental role in the growth of the local tourism industry and the site retains historic and social value.

Physical Description

Nothing remains on site but the relocated cottages are Federation Bungalow timber and iron cottages.


At the height of their lives, the cottages served as popular tourist accommodation for residents and visitors to the region in their beachfront location at Dunsborough. Subsequently, the buildings were relocated to the Millbrook Farm, Millbrook Road, and Yallingup. (See Millbrook Farm)
